Zoolander: the gift that keeps giving.
Yup. I honestly could not find a way to explain the plot to Emily without it sounding just like Zoolander!

Sam Wilson, who has wings made of metal and human imagination.
He was a paramedic. The maneuverability of his wings, the speed of his flight are all so he would be able to bring help to places no ordinary man could reach.
Imagine a soldier, stuck somewhere in the Alborz mountains, injured and dying, knowing that no helicopter can reach them, that no one would dare. Imagine looking up in your fever and seeing a pair of wings silhouetted against the sky.
Except, it’s not an angel coming to ease your way. It’s a black man, voice calm and reassuring, bandages and shots of antibiotic in his gear. He says his name is Sam and he asks you for yours. He asks you about your lover, about your kids, about the places you grew up in. Then he flies you off the mountain, trying to be gentle, but it’s jarring, because you’re alive.
You wake up in the hospital on your army base and you recover. You meet the man again and learn that there are more people with wings, a whole team and that when they take those wings off, they show you pictures of their dogs and buy you a beer.
Sam Wilson is a paramedic with wings. A healer and a savior.
Now, imagine Sam losing those wings. No, first, imagine him losing a soldier.
‘Is this the first time you lost a soldier?’ No, there were many, when the wings weren’t fast enough or when the blood flowed too freely. There were plenty of times you’ve sat down with someone who was saved by a different type of angel.
But losing someone who shares your sky? That’s different. That’s the sunshine melting the wax on your wings until they turn to feathers and you’re in freefall.
So you go back to Washington. It’s not the City of Angels, but it’s your city.
After a month spent sleepless, watching the skyline for some hint of a star, you walk into a Veteran’s center and you sit in a room full of people whose wings are clipped like yours.
You’re grounded now, but you can still heal, so you use your voice and try not to think of screams and broken metal feathers.
You take up running, because when you go really fast, it reminds you of the wind rushing against your face in freefall.
There, you meet a man that shines like the sun, blindingly enough to cover up his cracks. But you’re used to being closer to the sun than most. You see.
So you do what you were meant to: you heal and offer solace. First, with your words and then, when words aren’t enough, with your wings.
You take them out of storage and they call you Falcon.
Many of you were Falcons in the dry heat of the desert. Now, in a familiar skyline, you are alone.
You defend and you fight, because there can be no healing if there’s no one left to heal.
You are Sam Wilson and you have wings.

Every star is a sun as big, as bright, as our own. Just imagine, how far away from us you’d have to move the sun to make it appear as small and faint as a star. The light from the stars travels very fast. Faster than anything. But not infinitely fast. It takes time for their light to reach us. For the nearest ones, it takes years. For others, centuries. Some stars are so far away it takes eons for their light to get to Earth.
By the time the light from some stars gets here they are already dead. For those stars, we see only their ghosts. We see their light, but their bodies perished long, long ago.

i have a special folder for photos of small dogs snoozing on large sleeping places
Sebastian Stan attends Wizard World’s Chicago Comic Con on August 24th, 2014 (x)
When I found her, Kalie was abandoned in a residential land development, emaciated, dehydrated and suffering from serious complications caused by an untreated respiratory/sinus infection. After taking her to the vet, I found out that she also had fleas, parasites and was missing almost all her front teeth. At the time, I was told not to get attached because she probably wouldn’t live for more than a few days at best- but, I asked for whatever care she needed anyway.
That was six years ago.
Today (09/15/2014) Kalie was diagnosed with feline odontoclastic resorptive lesions. In brief, this condition is the result of a progressive dental disease that attacks tooth and eventual erodes it away until the nerve is left exposed, which causes a great deal of pain before eventually rotting away the tooth. Despite having regular check-ups, the condition was not caught in time and yesterday (09/14/2014) Kalie’s right canine tooth snapped in half. Currently, she has an extremely painful lesion surrounding a partial root which, if left untreated, will become infected as well as the start of another lesion in her lower right incisor. Right now she is scheduled for surgery this upcoming Thursday (09/18/2014) and is on anti-biotics to help fight off bone infection until this time.
Under normal circumstances, I would be able to pay the $900.00 CAD for both the surgery and for today’s vet bill, but in less than two weeks I am going on maternity leave and will be surviving on a severely reduced living income- right on the coattails of a medical procedure for my other cat, Luna, which cleaned out my savings in July. Right now, I plan on putting everything Kalie needs on credit, but doing this is going to leave me with absolutely no financial safety net as I welcome my first child into the family. If anyone is willing to help by funding or even just reblogging, I would be unspeakably grateful- I love my cat, and I want her to be a part of my family for many, many more years to come.
Thank-you so much for reading, bless.
i can’t believe it’s 2014 and there’s still no gay romantic comedy about vin diesel and dwayne johnson falling in love
They raise a gaggle of kids undercover working for a gov’t agency together
i would pay multiple dollars to see vin diesel and dwayne johnson portray a cute affectionate couple
